I am looking to be able to redirect users to a set page within a website when they visit the homepage
I have tried using a custom response Page and url category but this just gets into a nasty loop
If anyone could help that would be excellant
redirects are not supported as such
you can jury-rig a response page but this will only trigger the same response page if you point to the same hostname and you can only have one response page
you could try using a DNS proxy and poisoning DNS queries and redirecting to internal machines
It is not officially supported but ...
only with that it will not be done completely. You will also need different security rules to make sure that only specific websites will present the response page while the one you redirect to need to be allowed without response page ...
What exactly do you mean with the mentionned warning?
I shortly tried with a local html file (not as response page). At least there with chrome 59 and firefox 54 the redirect works without issues. Ok, the respone page is shortly visible, but this you can customize with a text like "redirecting in 3, 2, 1 ..." (or something which makes more sense 😛
I will try this shortly at the beginning of next week if it works the same way when actually presented by the firewall as response page
user opens facebook.com --> redirect to facebook/paloaltonetworks
user opens bing.com --> redirect to google.com
While you already have a lot of possibilities with the integrated response pages, such a redirect to your own webserver gives you even more possibilities - countless possibilities because there you don't have any space or whatever limitations because you do not have the full control over the webserver which runs on the firewall.
Definately something I have to add to my to do list 😉
